It’s Fall cleanup time! We’re not talking about raking up the leaves in your yard or putting the gardens to rest. This time of the year is ideal for a declutter of your finances to get your money to start working for you. Here are five simple ways you can get your finances in order.
Check Your Credit Score
Your credit score is a number that can cost or save you a great deal of money over your lifetime. As a cPort member, you have free 24-7 access to your score. By understanding the key factors that impact your score, you can take control of how it affects your finances.
Evaluate Your Spending
cPort’s Financial Wellness widget groups your expenses into categories so you can see where you are spending your money. Your transactions are organized so you can quickly see your purchases and make adjustments. Find the Financial Wellness widget when you log into cPort’s eBanking platform.
Tackle Your Debt
Simplify your bills by consolidating all into one low-rate payment. This is a good strategy to pay down any debt you might have and might even improve your credit score.
